    What’s on this weekend in Nottinghamshire: 25 – 27 October 2019

    By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes… It’s the season of the supernatural and there’s a host of hauntingly good events, fearsome festivities and spine-tingling attractions across Nottinghamshire as we get into the Halloween spirit. If that isn’t your bag of tricks, never fear, there’s plenty of other great events happening this weekend without a pumpkin or horrifying Halloween play-on-words in sight.

    Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside: visiting Nottingham’s Penny Lane

    If there's one thing Nottinghamshire lacks, it's the seaside; this decidedly land-locked county is just about as far away from the coast as you can get, which probably explains why Robin Hood is rarely depicted making sandcastles on the beach.

    Seven things we love about the Notts attractions in the Lonely Planet’s Ultimate United Kingdom Travelist

    Most of us have heard the news by now that a whopping seven Nottinghamshire attractions made travel guide publisher Lonely Planet’s top 500 travel experiences in the UK.
